And Da Coach said unto da bimbo Jenn Sterger,
“I’m not going to be as sympathetic to the woman as a lot of people are,” Ditka said. “It’s two years after the fact. Cut it out, you know? If you had a problem, you could have said it back then.”
Ditka, appearing on the Dan Lebatard show in Miami went on to say:
You don’t have to pull it up when when you’re going to have a spread in Playboy or you’re going to have a Monday night game coming up,” he said. “I’m old-fashioned.”Sterger posed in Playboy in 2006 while she attended Florida State University.
Le Batard continued with Ditka: “So, no sympathy?”
“None. Zero. Absolutely zero,” Ditka responded. “Now, you’ll get some calls about that, but frankly I could care less.”
Le Batard: “But it is sexual harassment, Mike.”
“I don’t know about that,” Ditka said. “If it’s sexual harassment, if it’s not reported until two years after the fact. I really don’t, I’ll be honest with you.”
After ending the interview, Le Batard said: “I think Mike Ditka just got himself in trouble.”
Da Word of Da Coach.
Thanks be to Papa.
You gotta love Da Coach. If enough time passes, it’s not sexual harassment.
